Overwatch skin concept art for D.Va and Reaper

Been a while since I posted new art. These are for you Overwatch fans. I did them as portfolio pieces to exercise some creative muscles. They are character skin idea concepts for D.Va and Reaper.

Here’s the story I came up with for the D.Va skin concept:

D.Va “K-Pop Idol” skin – In the years of defending South Korea from the omnic threat, the MEKA unit has caused as much damage to the urban landscape as they have helped protect it. Intense combat often destroyed multiple city blocks and even toppled buildings. In an effort to address public outcry against the military’s inability to minimize the destruction by forcing the battles away from urban centers, public-relations campaigns were created to leverage D.Va’s immense popularity and huge fanbase. During the annual year-end music awards season (Mnet Asian Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards, Mnet, Melon, etc.), D.Va was transformed into a stunning K-Pop idol and performed with some of the biggest K-Pop stars and groups on stage. Even her mech got an adorable makeover and used as a prop on stage (big furry bunny ears and paws).

Here’s the story I came up with for the Reaper skin concept:

Reaper “Tormentor” skin – Reaper has an admirer — a talented but twisted man who specializes in weapons and armor design, selling to the highest bidders in the criminal underworld. To show his admiration for Reaper’s legendary skills, he has created a set of visually stunning armor and weapons. The armor was inspired by Rodin’s “The Gates of Hell,” fusing sculpted visages of tormented souls into the armor’s design, and the dual shotguns were redesigned and outfitted with terrifying scythe blades — the classic weapon of Death, AKA the Grim Reaper. The hand-written note that accompanied this gift read, “Please accept this humble gift from an admirer. I have followed your legendary rise to become the only killer in existence who is worthy to be called a real life Grim Reaper. You are Death personafied, and I would be so honored if you deemed my gift worthy.”
